    Thinking of replacing Ultra lx

    Any input on whether one year Ultra 250 or 260 would be a better choice? I know to stay away from the 07 but what about a leftover 08? could this possibly hav GIO issues also?
    Any help will be appreciated.
    Love my Ultra Lx but think I want to try the power of the 250 260 on my next one.
    Thanks

    why not try the power of the 300x that is coming out next month? Otherwise stick with a leftover 2010 260x. They have improved little things over the years.

    Thanks Red
    I bought an 09 ultra 260 today,was going to get the leftover 08 250 but heard of a few horror stories on that year.so I figured I'd try my luck with the 09 260.
    Just peace of mind,I really don't believe I would have been dissapointed with the 08.
    Thanks for your input,cant wait to pick it up tomorrow.Only thing I'm a bit concerned with now is my long range runs that I do,,extra gas strapped to the back?
    See ya.Steve

    Keep an eye on your pump bearings. Someone correct me if i'm wrong but they were updated in 2010 models.

    Yes I believe you are right ,updated in 2010 model.Are they really that prone to failure without the 2010 upgrade?? My LX has 225 hours and no problems,granted a lot less power and torque going thru it.
    Thanks..Steve
